Born from Michelangelo's genius, the David is one of the highest expressions, not only of Italian Renaissance, but of the world art. The byblic heroe is represented by the florentine sculptor as a gorgeous and winning athlete, full of youth and force. Antonio Paolucci, in the introduction, tells us the byblic story to discover the character and reconstructs the phases that this art wrk has gone through.
The exact anatomy of forms, the virile elegance of the posture, the grace of the model, are carefully shown by the photograph Aurelio Amendola, that with his shots underlines each detail of the statue as well as the harmony of the whole, looking for the same illusion Michelangelo had of an art work between fantasy and reality
